The University of Louisiana at Monroe has developed a hazard mitigation plan, to assess the hazards that can affect ULM and our vulnerabilities to those hazards. The plan focuses on reducing the risk of loss of life, injury and property damage due to hazards such as drought, winter storms, and floods.
This plan also identifies specific actions that can be undertaken to minimize or eliminate
these vulnerabilities. These projects can be implemented as funding becomes available.
This plan is a requirement for ULM’s eligibility for federal mitigation grant programs.
Each year, millions of federal hazard mitigation grant dollars are made available
to eligible applicants via programs such as the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)
and the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (PDM). With an approved hazard mitigation
plan, ULM will become eligible for these competitive grant funds.
As part of the development process, and in compliance with 44 CFR, part 201, the ULM
community is available to review the final draft of this plan, available as a PDF
